    Hey Guys,

    Love the show! It is very entertaining!

    In terms of a Rogue/Immortal Hybrid, I don’t think it is as overpowered as what may be portrayed.

    Remember, you are only allowed only one bonus action and one action a round.

    A rogue’s dash (Cunning action) ability is a bonus action and Surge of Speed is a bonus action as well. You can’t do both on the same go and still attack.

    Bonus actions also cannot sub for regular actions (See the most recent Sage Advice)…

    Also, don’t forget that disciplines require concentration which means that your Immortal who is in combat and getting hit will (on average) use his bonus action every round to reactivate his discipline (especially when he is getting hit with higher amounts of damage at higher levels.

    The only thing I am not too sure about is if I have “Augmented Weapon” activated and then I get hit and lose my concentration, does Augmented Weapon go away or does it last the full minute….I would rule it goes away, but wonder what you think?

    In regards to moving between attacks. Page 190 of the PHB has a heading on the 2nd column: Breaking Up Your Move which states clearly that a character with multiple attacks can break up their movement between attacks.
